Blowholes usually eject (spray) a lot of water out of a small crack in the lava, the one in this video isn’t doing that. These blowhole pictures show what blowholes are known for…

Some people die each year at one of the blowhole locations in Hawaii. Usually people get caught unaware by the force of a large surge of water out of the hole, get knocked off-balance and fall into the blowhole – sometimes head first. Be careful when you go to check them out – they’re great fun – but can be really dangerous too.
Some Blowhole locations:
Oahu – close to Sandy Beach.
Maui – west side, past Kahana, near rock stacking location.
Big Island – South Point
Kauai – Spouting Horn
